Everyone knows Vincent suffered from depression, so it's surprising (or perhaps not) that so many of his paintings are dominated by bright, sunshine, summer time yellows (his sunflowers, his chair, even his self portraits).
None more so than this simple, yet so evocative, painting of harvest ready fields, and a farmer trudging home through that sweltering Provençal summer heat.
His genius is that somehow he combines perfect perspective precision with Impressionistic brush strokes that take you right there behind the artist as he paints.
The red flowers, the dark greens of the trees and the pale blue of the sky make for a colourful palette on a scarf when it is being worn.
You can be sure many people will say 'I love your scarf, but what's the design?' All the better when you can reply 'I'm wearing a Van Gogh'.
The painting dates to 1888, and he died 2 years later (1853-1890).
The image frame is a Weston Bloodstone.
